Robin Cook (of Coma fame) is ready with his new thriller: Foreign Body. It’s about the dark side of medical tourism and “the action begins in New Delhi, India, where a mysterious hot nurse puts a mysterious injection into an older woman… The nurse works for cutthroat medical entrepreneurs.”
Michael Eisner is former chief of Disney during whose tenure the studio produced such hit films as Saturday Night Fever and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
According to a story on NPR’s All Things Considered, Cook told Eisner he has a book coming out in August about Americans going to India for cut-rate operations. “It was full of suspense, murder and sexy nurses,” and suggested “a series of videos that would be a prequel.”
Result? “A low-budget, quick-and-dirty web series” produced by Vuguru, Eisner’s year-old broadband production company. There are 50 episodes of two-minutes each.

And the exotic thriller
A group of dangerous Indian beauties, brimming with hope and desire are brought to the sunny shores of Southern California and are promised the American dream. They are taken in by a group of young, cutthroat medical entrepreneurs who hope to train them and cultivate their nursing skills for their own mysterious ends. The women soon become seduced by the brash and ambitious charmer who lords over them, but for him, his lust for the one, mysterious, unattainable beauty threatens to unravel the very conspiracy he built.
